Steal like an artist

1. Steal like an artist.

Every artist gets asked the question, “Where do you get your ideas?”
The honest artist answers, “I steal them.”

A friend shared this link to Austin Kleon's website.  This article blew me away!   It's a list of great advice, including #2, Don't wait until you know who you are to start making things, which uses, among other things, Patti Smith's book, Just Kids, to make his point.

There's so much there I will probably be reading and pondering it all week.
